Norjalainen viikinkimetallia soittava Helheim julkaisi videon ”Rignir”-albuminsa nimikkokappaleesta. Sadetta tarkoittava kappale on saanut inspiraationsa bändin kotikaupungin, Bergenin ilmastosta. Toimittajamme antoi ”Rignir”-levylle 8.5 pistettä levyarvostelussaan.
Helheimin laulaja V’gandr kommentoi yhteistyötä videon ohjanneen romanialaisen multimedia-artisti Costin Chioreanun kanssa:
”Collaborating with Costin has been an absolute honour and pleasure. The way he interpreted the song is nothing short of perfection and we tip our hats to the gentleman. He used our audio and lyrical canvas to paint the emotions we were trying to create. The circle is complete.”
Chioreanu on tehnyt paljon yhteistyötä Dark Essence Recordsin kanssa. Hän kertoi tuntemastaan arvostuksesta Helheimiä kohtaan seuraavasti:
”I first discovered Helheim in the late 90’s after I found a bootleg cassette copy of their ”Av norrøn ætt” album on the black market in post-communist Romania. Their music has been around me since then and I’ve always been an admirer of how they have evolved. After more than 20 years we finally met in Bucharest (coincidentally the same city where I first came across their music) to film a video, and we had such an amazing time doing it.
I would also like to say that my best videos and artworks are, strangely or not, those which I make for musicians who are true to themselves and enmesh perfectly with their work. Then, the vibe brought by our collaboration is warm and friendly. It’s as if the Universe wants to salute their dedication through my work, and such is the case with this music video, when everything in the making process was so magical that I felt the work was creating itself.”
